It is that time again when we take the opportunity of that end of the year lull, before we gear-up and get cracking with the new year, to take a step back, reflect on our creative 2017 and pick out some of our favourite projects. Have you done this yet? I would love to know if you have so please feel free to let me know in the comments and share links to it if you have them!
I’ve done mine as a video this year and shared a little of the back story to my 2017 creative life. I think it does help to do a review so that you can see the direction you have been and where you are going, or at least hopefully.
Sometimes it is important to take stock, be kind to yourself and look at your work with fresh eyes. Everything moves so fast, with the constant need to be doing something new, that we often forget the work we have put in over the year. So it is a great time to just pause and congratulate yourself for everything you have done, even if you haven’t had a chance to do a lot creatively this year, what you have done is amazing! So go look back over your art journals, cards, sketchbooks or whatever works you have from 2017, before we all start racing ahead with 2018!
